Vatican II restored the Order of Virgins, which dates from the early Church. Canon 604 speaks of this form of consecrated life, mentioned in the Catechism (paras 922-4). We are consecrated publicly by the Bishop to live an independent life within the local church community. Each woman is autonomous, and her pattern of life is planned by herself and approved by the Bishop. She is responsible for her own finances. Other women are consecrated as widows; our vow is for life. Those who wish meet annually for a week at Hyning monastery. This kind of religious life combines freedom with commitment.

The Marist Way is the lay branch of the Marist Congregation, bringing together people who wish to participate in the life and mission of the Church in the 'Spirit of Mary', a way envisaged by Jean-Claude Colin, founder of the Marists, who are Priests, Sisters, Brothers and Laity. Marists endeavour to think, feel, judge and act as Mary did, at Nazareth and at Pentecost. All Marists believe that Mary maintains a special interest in bringing the women and men of our time into contact with her Son, Jesus. They feel called to share in this concern of Mary's and to become part of her family to work on her behalf. The term 'the work of Mary' describes this essentially missionary spirit.
